On Tuesday 27 November 2012, the English writer Michael Heyman visited our school and shared a Non- sense session full of poetry, songs and more with Primary Division students. Our students had the opportunity to buy an autograph copy of his latest book “This book makes non sense: nonsense poems and worse”.

Michael Heyman is a Professor of English at Berkley, where he teaches courses on children’s literature, music for children, poetics, multicultural literature, and performance poetry. Heyman received his M.Phil from Oxford University in English Romantic Studies and his PhD in nonsenseliterature from University of Glasgow. He is an alumnus of Berkley, where he studied tenor saxophone.
